- "As a novice singer I felt quite shy to sing in front of anyone, however James' calming presence and constant encouragement allowed me the confidence to dispel any insecurities. In Each session James provided great knowledge and insight into correct breathing techniques, body posture and vocal projection, all of which are the foundations of a great singer."Ruby WoodBrisbane
- "James was my vocal and piano teacher for two years and an exceptional one must I say. His skill in classical technique, specifically breathing and physiology were an eye opener for myself as he was the first to introduce the concept to me. He is a true artist in his approach to teaching, and with such empathy and devotion to his students, I absolutely recommend his mentorship in musicology, composition, song writing, and performance."Emma Tomlinson17, Student, Brisbane
- "James has a way of explaining the physicality of singing that helped me use my voice 200% better than I had been before. With his coaching I hit notes I didn't think it possible for me to reach. He is a gentle and knowledgeable teacher who was reflexive to my needs. Would recommend him to anyone looking to improve their vocal practice."Kaitlyn PlyleySpoken-word performer, Melbourne
- "James always displayed a professional manner and an open mind to different styles of music and song selection. The experience was rather a collaborative process, as he accompanied my singing on the piano we were able to experiment and mix up the song direction and feel . His studio setting provided all the equipment necessary to record songs, which I used as a learning tool, to improve singing through listening. Ultimately, James helped me discover my own voice within a highly creative, nurturing and fun environment."Ruby WoodBrisbane
